For years, Thanos has been a presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a puppeteer pulling the strings behind the scenes. That is until making his full debut in Avengers: Infinity War. The Mad Titan's diabolical plan to purge half the universe of all life drove him, as he searched far and wide for all six Infinity Stones. You can become the tyrant of the universe with these awesome Thanos action figures.

Purge half the universe of all life

After building toward the villain for ten years, Thanos' full debut in Avengers: Infinity War was worth the wait. There have been a lot of villains in the MCU and Thanos is arguably the best. He's flawed, frightening, and even a little sympathetic. He'll go down in Hollywood history as one of the all time greats.

Thanos' evil plan is nothing to celebrate, but these figures showcase the Mad Titan in beautiful detail. We especially like the Thanos figure from Avengers: Endgame, which features a completed Infinity Gauntlet and detailed gold armor.

If you want to recreate one of the coolest battles in the entire MCU, the Thanos vs. Iron Man set features two of the MCU's most important characters doing battle. Show Thanos what he has coming to him, because Iron Man isn't going to give up so easily when they meet again in Avengers: Endgame.
